§ DR. MACNAMARA
I beg to ask the Vice-President of the Committee of Council on Education whether, in the event of the Board of Education sanctioning instruction in first aid and home nursing under Group VIII. of the new evening school Minute, it would be competent for school boards in the future to spend the rates and receive Exchequer grants in respect of such subjects.
§ SIR J. GORST
Yes, in all cases as regards the education of children; but, in the case of adults, only if the school or class were conducted under the provisions of the Education Bill now before Parliament, if the same becomes law.
